Engine fitting in the Ex-Urpiala BMW-Alpina CSL

A 3.5 litre fuel injected engine has arrived from Lester Owen for us to fit in the BMW-Alpina CSL. The Helix supplied triple plate clutch was fitted before the engine went in the whole. The gearbox came out first in order to line up all three clutch plates on the input shaft. Then the engine went in the whole before the gearbox was re-fitted from underneath. The original Alpina engine has been set aside and a new engine has been built up from another block and head and all steel internals. The original Alpina slide throttle fuel injection system has been retained. After Christmas we will be getting everything plumbed in. Expect to see this car on track in 2016.
